From Inspiration to Wedding: The Wrap UP

It's been a really great few days on SMP. I hope that through Libby and Patrick's wedding you were able to see how a wedding is really built...from soup to nuts. Or as I should say, from inspiration to reality. I really feel like this little project has given me more motivation and excitement than I have ever had to infuse SMP with hands-on, really exciting features. Ideas and inspirations that will resonate with even more brides out there. Before we wrap things up, I thought I'd share a few...

But you know what, there is no better way to tell the story than with the photographs that...

From Inspiration to WEDDING: The Flood

So before we get to all of the wedding goodness, the story wouldn't be complete without telling you about the little (and by little, I mean HUGE) road bump that we encountered just days before the wedding. This is actually for all of you brides out there that are petrified of all of the "what ifs..." You know what I mean. What if it rains, what if it's too hot/too cold/too windy, what if I forget my vows, what if the flowers wilt, what if no one dances, what if, what if, what if. Well, I am...
